[Verse]

D                              A
Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
                            G           A               D
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
               D                        A
Just try your best, try everything you can.
                               G                  A               D
And don't you worry what they tell themselves       when you're away.


[Chorus]

         D                                                 A
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride everything,
                G                                         D
Everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right (all right)


[Verse]

D                              A
Hey, you know they're all the same.
                             G           A              D
You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
            D                            A
Live right now.       Yeah, just be yourself.
                            G             A             D
It doesn't matter if it's good enough       for someone else.


[Chorus]

         D                                                 A
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride everything,
                G                                         D
Everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right (all right)


[Verse]

D                              A
Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
                            G              A                D
It's only in your head you feel left out      or looked down on.
              D                       A
Just do your best, do everything you can.
                              G               A          D
And don't you worry what the bitter hearts     are gonna say.


[Chorus]

         D                                                 A
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride everything,
                G                                         D
Everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right (all right)
         D                                                 A
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride everything,
                G                                         D
Everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right (all right)


[End]

D


I recommend you use these power chords, not the secondary chords.
D – x577xxx (or D2 – xx0230) A – 5776xx  
G – 3554xx (or 3200xx)
For the D2 and A2, mute the low E sting with your index finger.

The chords are right but the D is an octave high. The way it sounds to me in the song is as if it's in Drop D, and the top three strings are played open for the D, then up to the 7th fret for the A, and then the 5th fret for the G. They also sound really good palm-muted.
